Arsenal fans have some seriously raised eyebrows here in the Football Transfer Tavern after we inform them of exactly what the Metro are saying.
The publication seem to be under the impression that the North London club are in fact working on a package to re-sign former skipper Robin van Persie, who of course defected to Manchester United.
Now, given how unhappy the Dutch star is at United, and how he is not exactly bothering to hide the fact, we think that RVP will be on the move in the summer, and it could well be back down south to his former club.
Arsene Wenger has played it coy over the future of the former Feyenoord forward, but Metro seem to think that RVP will be making the switch – and could even be willing to take a pay cut to do so.
Quite how that would go down with the Old Trafford faithful we do not know, but the guess here in the tavern is that it will be a huge problem.
In recent days, not only has RVP hit out at his team, but also at his team-mates and we do not think that this is the ideal way to build a future at a club!
Will Arsenal really be tempted to return for their former hero? Let us know your thoughts below.
